Combining Your Skills and Passions
By Leah Caplanis | @88SOCIAL
Ok! So you’ve all considered your top three passions and skill sets… Now it’s time to put those skills and passions to work.
Say you’re passionate about dancing and have great communication skills. In what way do dancers need better connection or communication? Maybe you love to shop and are skilled in math. How can you help fellow fashionistas get the most bang for their buck?
Start by asking yourself the following questions:
1. What are some needs currently unaddressed by people that share your passions?
My top three passions are spirituality, business and communications, and holistic nutrition. I decided to live a more holistic lifestyle and began sticking to a strict vegan diet. Unfortunately, this meant limited options when it came to alcohol, which brings me to question #2.
2. How can your passions and talents be combined to make a positive impact?
I noticed the lack of alcoholic beverage options for those living a healthy lifestyle and was inspired to put my marketing, sales, management and business development skills to work. I have set out on a mission to create a health-conscious alcoholic beverage while pushing limits and empowering women.
